burial

We kickstart a new year with a special edition of our loop; a recap of the best records dropped during our long festive break. Among all of them, two were particularly unexpected, Burial’s new three-track EP ‘Rival Dealer’, whose standout moment ‘Come Down To Us’ is the first number one in our favourite tracks chart this year and Beyoncé who also shocked the whole industry releasing by surprise an eponymous new album, which turned out to be her most solid effort to date. On the heat of a very clever and instant marketing campaign hers has become in a matter of days the eight best selling record in the States last year.

New works by St. Vincent; The War On Drugs; Damien Jurado; Broken Bells; EMA; Angel Haze and Mogwai are featured in this preview of the most interesting music about to be released.

To wish him all the best on his role as what it used to be called “the leader of the free world” pop stars of all backgrounds were playing in multiple shows and parties across Washington and the rest of the States yesterday. From the Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklyn, who sang the patriotic anthem “My Country Tis Of Thee” at the Inauguration to Arcade Fire. Everyone who’s anyone in the pop world, except maybe for, errm, Daddy Yankee…were somehow involved on the celebration. Here’s a few of the most notorious moments Read the rest of this entry »
